“Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup of tea.” ~Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
As I rode my bike to work, I was drawn to stop and connect with this pelican at Lake Merritt. I was inspired to ponder pelicans and our interconnectedness to water and air. I found this quote to share.
“Consider these truths in our daily lives. Our health is dependent upon the health of where we live – in the large scope, Earth, and in the narrow scope – our homes and work places. And this is true on all levels. If you are eating foods that are not nutritious, and you are drinking water with poisons in it – your health and potential will be greatly limited. If you work in a place where the culture is negative, your spirit will be depleted – which will cause your energy and health to decline. The examples are limitless – think about a few examples yourself before you move on.
Everything is connected. How you live your life effects all other life. Consider the Butterfly Effect: What you do will dramatically effect what happens next. Put yourself in good environments.Help create good environments. Be a positive influence – it is all connected. “
